Hi guys, I have thousands of fasta files each with one sequence only. I need to run a command in my linux/unix system to perform certain job and loop that command through each file and get the output in a single file. Is there a way to do that? I was suggested to use bash loop. For example, if I need to translate a DNA sequence in a fasta file and if the program (sixpack in this case) translates only one sequence at a time, how do I do this for multiple submission of files? I want to avoid doing this individually:
sixpack <fasta1.fasta sixpack <fasta2.fasta sixpack <fasta3.fasta
Instead, I want the bash(or perl/python script) to follow the same command looping through each fasta file. Thank you for your help!
